    Chris – continued success with the store – all our orders have been fantastic.

    You might want to get the word out about the Powerex batteries available, they totally rock and your prices are the best I’ve seen.

    Given the choice of cool stuff the TT Changer or Gitzo apparel are equally awesome.

    Your company is AWESOME! Great Products and Excellent service!!

    Trek-Tech Cammock Universal Tripod Shelf, Benro Aluminum HVC Flexpod, Westcott Apollo, Think Tank Photo Retrospective Bag, Puffin Pad — any of these would make a great addition if I won.

    Thanks for being so wonderful!!

  48. Jim Taylor says:

    Got to have the flexpod, looks like a must have for macro photography.
